I bought the new immolator kit. It is beutifull. There is one thing, and only one thing, that really made me grimmace at its apearence. The one battle sister in the model. At first when I saw the head and the torso in the sprew I jumped!
"THERE IS A PLASTIC SISTER HERE!" I shouted outlaud.
Then after closer inspection I said "She is one ugly miniature". Thats what I think of her. Thankfully she is not a very large feature of the Immolator, and still manages to look well amidst the heavy flamers.
Since she doesn't look to great, I am beggining to beleive that plastic minies of sisters would not have been as good as our metal ones. However, I think they tried to make the plastic sisters like guardsmen. I think they should be more like space mareins where the shoulder pad is a seperate peice. Any thoughts and Ideas? This thread is NOT demanding plastic minis or pining about how we don't have them. It is about speculating the nature of sisters and their ability to be plastic.
I don't think there could be plastic sisters, too much detail in each figure. It would be a nightmare trying to replicate them on plastic, especially their robes.
While it would be cost effective and i like the idea of female space marines i think idinos is right it would be terrible if games workshop tried to replicate the detail in plastic.
In the eyes of a bullet all are created equal *maniacal laughter*
It is also actualy more expensive to make the molds for plastic figures compared to metal.
only initially, but it is more ecenomic in the long run.
I agree here with idinos. One of the most unusual feature of the sob it the fact we have no plasticâ€™s, it would spoil it if they ever do decide to bring plasticâ€™s in. Thereâ€™s just too much detail even if its cheeper, I still would prefer to pay the price for them.
By the way Shiver, how bad does it really look. Is there a lot of detail missing? I donâ€™t own a new Immolator kit, so I wouldnâ€™t know, and I have not seen any pictures of the new immolator thatâ€™s non assembled and has not been painted.
well, on top of the immolator, she doesn't look very bad. This is because she doesn't dominate the scene. the face is probably the worse in my entire army though (and I have a couple of metal ones who didn't come out of the mold the right way if you know what I meen). The sabbot helm head is alright though (it does come with 2 heads). The torso has much to be desired in my opinion thuogh. It is a good atempt but some how it seems really bulky, not even fat or chubby, but dispraportunate. The shoulder pads are also way too small. I think the seat belt (kindof looks like a parachute, or back pack straps) might be what causes this. It just doesn't look quite the way sisters of battle have in the past.
